Fried cabbage is a very versatile thing and I would say a staple in Hungarian cuisine, cabbage pasta being a common dish on the tables in this country (well, it was/is in my family, for sure). It is easy and relatively quick, and can be used as a filling for puff pastry, mix it with pasta or anything else of your choice.
1 medium white cabbage, shredded
olive or vegetable oil (granny would use fat)
big pinch of salt
pepper to taste
1 heaped tbsp of sugar
Shred the cabbage and sprinkle with salt. Let rest for about 30 minutes then squeeze. Sprinkle with the pepper and sugar, mix.
Grab a pot and add the oil, add the cabbage and fry on low heat, mixing frequently, until turns brownish (careful, burns easily). It will take some time so put the radio and your dancing shoes on.
When it is done, you can use it right away or freeze. Tastes best in puff pastry 😉
